Today we've released our viscosity and specific gravity table online. If you've read any of the C-series manuals we put out, you're probably familiar with this table, as it lists each for various common craft products.
A couple of notes for those interested in this data:
Specific Gravity: the specific gravity, in this case, is the ratio of the density of the substance to the density of water.
SSU (Saybolt universal second): is a measure of the time that it takes for 60 cubic centimeters of the substance to flow through a specific tube.
From the page:
|10%||1.01||31.7 SSU @ 59°F|
|50%||1.06||33 SSU @ 59°F|
|80%||1.08||35 SSU @ 59°F|
|Animal Fat||0.9||130 SSU @ 115°F|
|50 SSU @ 200°F|
|Barbecue Sauce||1.05||11,500 SSU @ 40-75°F|
|Beer||1.02||32 SSU @ 68°F|
|Blood - Animal||.93-.98||15,000 SSU @ 55°F|
|Butter||.93-.98||15,000 SSU @ 55°F|
|440 SSU @ 90°F|
